Harrison River Becomes BCs first Wild Salmon Stronghold


The Harrison River has become the first Salmon Stronghold in Canada. The Salmon Stronghold seeks to protect the most robust remaining populations of wild salmon by identifying watersheds of particularly high value and managing for robust wild stocks. The Harrison River in Lower Mainland BC flows into the Lower Fraser Below Hope and is home to robust runs of Sockeye, Fall Chinook, Coho, Chum and Pink as well as cutthroat, bull trout, and small populations of Spring Chinook and Steelhead. More information on the Wild Salmon Center's website.
